Hello, I have a passion flower which always does well in spite of a poor piece of ground! This year I have made the patch bigger and added rich soil. My question is - Now I have room for a couple more plants, which would be best suited?

I grow mint under my passion flower as the soil is so poor and it is self contained.

Thank you Kitty. Good idea for me because this is a self contained area also. Mint can be safely tethered in there.

Do you want to grow Passionfruit? Or just flowers?

Passiflora edulis is what I grew for fruit and it was quite prolific.
When I moved house and transplanted it, it didn't fruit the next year and then died.

They need regular feeding to fruit well.
